|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your automobile. Use as much petrol as you like and top it off when you return your car at the end of your rental period. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay refueling charges if you don't fill up the tank|
